Not so far. Good to know that cross-building is not part of the required context.

I've yet to find a place that might be involved that mixes awk use with an expression
generating a file path that could generate /sys/param.h as the path.

If this was happening in my prior -r352341 context, I did not notice it. I jumped
from there to -r355027 . So I can not effectively narrow the range for when it
started based on my activity.
